Question DetailsAsked on 10/21/2020

Did my plumber added new pipes incorrectly? warm water from hot line after the installation.

my master bedroom shower has a separate small water heater and is broken. Plumber suggested we hook it back to the big tank to save energy, which made sense and we agreed. He tapped the cold and hot water pipes close to the main cold and hot water supply (near the top of the main supply line). After that, most hot water line only have warm or cold water. The master shower and kitchen has hot water. I suspect the way or the location where he added the new pipe caused the problem but of course he insists he did nothing wrong. He added the hot water pipe on a T junction and hot water is no longer going down and only flows to the horizontal line. The main cold water supply is as hot as the hot water supply to the heater. I am concerned.

should he tap the new pipes down somewhere else instead? I am thinking to add back the additional heater, at least it would work as normal. The plumber is a nice guy but It seems to me that he does not know how it should be connected to the water heater
